If you have ever encountered an ice or snow storm on the road and weren’t sure how to push through, these tips from Ford should be worth the look.
The first thing you should do, is of course, slow down and maintain the safe distance with the car in front of you, because in the event something does happen, you will be needing those extra yards to react.
Second, be very gentle with both the gas pedal as well as a brake, because losing traction is precisely what you are trying to avoid. Speaking of which, if you do start to slide, Ford advises you take your foot off a gas and gently steer in the direction of the slide.
Again, don’t apply the brakes until you have regained traction, otherwise you will risk another slide.
Also, using cruise control on the very slippery surfaces can be dangerous since you might need to hit the brakes in order to deactivate it.
There are the number of things you can do in order to be better prepared for icy roads, but we will let you find out what they are on your own by checking out the video below.
